What is the Entity Framework?

The Entity Framework is a lightweight, extensible, open-source, and cross-platform framework which serves as an Object-Relational Mapper (ORM) for .NET.

It is the library which handles the database connection and data access layer of a .NET Core application; it is essentially a collection of libraries which connects the objects in the C# code with those in the database. By allowing developers to work with their database using these .NET objects, this framework eliminates the need for most data-access queries.

Entity Framework Core works with PostgreSQL, which is the database used by our projects.
